Jacki Carr is a Goal Coach, Motivational Speaker, Writer and Mama. She also co-founded of Rock Your Bliss, a transformation company rooted in yoga and coaching, with her best friend Mary Beth Larue. Jacki is a Houston, Texas native who now calls the funky mountain town of Evergreen, Colorado home. She can be found hiking in flannel with her fam, hosting goal coaching hikes out in nature, yin yoga workshops on her front porch and she LOVES a microphone to share any and all tools to help you live a life you love.
Now before we all put on our favourite flannel and book a flight to Colorado to hang out with this babe, we asked her a few of our burning questions!
Tell us a bit about Rock Your Bliss, your podcast and the amazing retreats you run!
Rock Your Bliss is a yoga-inspired coaching company founded by me and Mary Beth LaRue. It is a movement for your mind and body offering workshops, a podcast, retreats and online programs on a global level. We combine the magic of yoga and coaching for an experience in belonging, a space where you can connect within and with others. We host retreat in Mexico, California, Colorado and workshops all over! I always leave feeling beyond grateful for the vulnerable conversation, the learning and the deep connection in a community of like-minded women!
Tell us about your coaching and group coaching work with Lightyear.
My coaching style includes real + honest conversations and true connection to your most powerful and whole self, preferably while hiking a mountain in flannel. I believe we all have unique gifts to offer and I want to live in the World where we put fear in the backseat and courage up front and offer them up. All of them. I am certified faculty member of Lightyear Leadership and my teacher/mother/sister/friend is the founder, Susanne Conrad. The work is deeply rooted in Personal Legacy and Leadership and I live it, truly the work works!
What advice would you give your 19 year old self?
Oh 19 year old Jacki, darling, if you can pause the fast pace of life you are leading and take one moment, please do today and say thank you to yourself for all that you have learned thus far. It is a shitshow and I daresay embrace it. You are learning right now, learning what you enjoy, who you enjoy and truly about your most true self. You are learning the depths of your emotions and you are doing a great job. Yes, yes failure is part of it. Yes it is. I see you are on your second major change and just so you know, you are going to change it again and add another one. All learning. And last thing, keep watching Sex & the City. Finish it, take notes, all the notes.
If you could invite any person for dinner, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Well, I would LOVE to sit down with Ruth Bader Ginsburg. I am beyond inspired by her journey, her voice and what she stands for in human rights and equality. And I love her love story, I want to talk to her about balance, her thoughts on the meaning of power, her wish for the World and how I can support.
What is your favourite quote?
Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive. - Howard Thurman
